Question

Got blocked out by the firewall and the web console doesn't help.

I’ve followed the instruction here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-nginx-on-debian-9 for setting up a webserver. However, after setting up the firewall through nfw and logging out, I can’t access the droplet both by ssh and the web console anymore. Fwiw, opening the web console gives me this repeatedly:

[UFW BLOCK] IN=eth0 OUT= MAC= ... SRC= ...

so it looks like the logging attempt has been blocked by ufw.

I’m pretty sure that when I ran ufw allow 'Nginx HTTP' and then ufw status the output didn’t contain OpenSSH. I should have noticed that :(

What should I do now?
